Oh, and ...

By the by ... a likely side-effect of my having the new glasses is that I will once again be able to transcribe my scrawled-in-little-notebooks poems onto the computer!

Of course, I have not actually written anything in quite a while, but I do have a rather hefty backlog of stuff that I have yet to transcribe!
